After Max Verstappen dominated in Spa, he heads into his home race, the Dutch Grand Prix, with Ferrari at his mercy.

Spa was Formula 1’s first stop after the summer break, and also the first outing with the FIA’s new Technical Directive in force, addressing the plank and skid blocks under the cars in a bid to reduce the impact of porpoising.

At this stage it is not clear how impactful that TD was, but Verstappen’s utter dominance of the Belgian Grand Prix was a very worrying sign for Ferrari.

Verstappen outqualified the lead Ferrari by over six tenths, and despite dropping to P14 on the grid with a penalty, he still won the race by just under 18 seconds ahead of team-mate Sergio Perez.

 

 

Now 98 points ahead of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, Verstappen would surely end the Scuderia’s title hopes once and for all if he delivers a display of similar dominance on home soil.

Where does the 2022 Dutch Grand Prix take place?

Zandvoort returned to the Formula 1 calendar for 2021 – but not the Zandvoort that we all remembered.

For years now the Dutch fans have been bringing the party atmosphere to Formula 1 in support of their guy Max Verstappen, and finally they have a race on home soil again.

The Netherlands has a population of 17.5 million, and the municipality of Zandvoort serves as one of the country’s major beach resorts. It has a population of around 17,000.

Ahead of its Formula 1 return Circuit Zandvoort underwent a major transformation. The biggest of those changes being the introduction of two banked corners.

The now 4.252 km-track introduced banking to the iconic Hugenholtzbocht corner, while Arie Luyendijkbocht, the last corner of the lap, features banking at 19 degrees, making it twice as steep as the banking seen at Indianapolis.

The circuit features 13 turns, and the firm in charge of redesigning the track, Dromo Circuit Design, said they wanted to emulate Eau Rouge and Raidillon at Spa, and Silverstone’s fast-paced sweep of Maggots and Becketts.

Given that the Dutch Grand Prix was a regular fixture on the calendar from the early 1950s to the mid-1980s, a number of legendary drivers have tasted victory on Dutch soil.

Double World Champion Jim Clark did so most regularly, emerging as the winning driver on four occasions; in 1963, 1964, 1965 and 1967.

Jackie Stewart and Niki Lauda have both been the victor in Zandvoort three times, with the Scot dominating in the late 60s and early 70s and the Austrian winning in 1974, 1977 and 1985.

Alberto Ascari, Jack Brabham, James Hunt and Alain Prost have all prevailed twice, while home hero Max Verstappen won in 2021 as Formula 1 returned to the nation. But for how much longer will Verstappen be a one-time winner here?

The last 10 winners of the Dutch Grand Prix are as follows:

2021: Max Verstappen (Red Bull)
1985: Niki Lauda (McLaren)
1984: Alain Prost (McLaren)
1983: Rene Arnoux (Ferrari)
1982: Didier Peroni (Ferrari)
1981: Alain Prost (Renault)
1980: Nelson Piquet (Brabham)
1979: Alan Jones (Williams)
1978: Mario Andretti (Lotus)
1977: Niki Lauda (Ferrari)

Tyre choices for the 2022 Dutch Grand Prix

After settling in the middle of their range for Spa, Pirelli switches to the hardest compounds available for Zandvoort, part two of the triple-header.

This means that the C1 will be the hard tyre, the C2 is going to be the medium and the C3 shall serve as the soft tyre.
